    Congo Chicken Stew

    Muamba nsusu is a peanut-chicken stew that’s popular in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Here’s a version you can make at home. Be sure to get an adult’s help!

    1 medium onion, diced

    1 large carrot, diced

    2 tablespoons oil

    1/2 cup peanut butter

    1 cup tomato sauce

    2 cups chicken broth

    2 pounds cooked chicken, chopped

    cooked rice

    1. In a large pot, cook the onion and carrot in the oil for a few minutes until they’re soft.

    2. Add the peanut butter and tomato sauce and mix well.

    3. Stir in the chicken broth a little at a time.

    4. Add the chicken and let it all cook together for several minutes until the stew has thickened. If you want, stir in a teaspoon of crushed red pepper or a dash of cayenne pepper to add some spice.

    5. Serve over rice. Enjoy!
